Meningie - Cities, Towns and Localities
Located on the shores of Australia’s largest freshwater lake system, the township of Meningie provides access to the northern end of the Coorong National Park. A great place to make your base from which to enjoy the surrounds through any number of ecological tour operator or just go exploring on your own.

Travelling south, you pass through Wood’s Well and Policemans Point. Just over 60 km south of Meningie is the township of Salt Creek, but don’t blink, as you may miss it. Salt Creek marks the entrance into the more remote southern stretches of the Coorong National Park. Tourist information and camping permits are available from the township’s two highway roadhouses.

Camp Coorong and Meningie has popular Aboriginal guided tours, explaining the local Dreamtime creation story.

Check out our listing of Meningie accommodation. In addition to our listed online travel guide information, contact the local tourism visitor centre for your destination for more attractions, tours, local maps and other information.
